Together Apart is a reaction to the world-wide Covid 19 Pandemic and the mandated isolation to slow the spread of the disease.
The composition of Together Apart 1 is made-up of several vignettes of imagery separated by a pervasive, over-painting of reds and pinks. He sees the vignettes as singular components - be it single people, or a family unit or even a state or country separated from the rest of society - necessitated by the danger of the spread of the virus.
His artistic influences for Together Apart 1 are Robert Motherwell, Gary Komarin, Hans Hoffman and Jasper Johns.
